How to Rejuvenate Your Smile with Dental Bonding

Apr 15, 2022

Have you been thinking about a smile makeover recently? Do you want to start with one of the most affordable cosmetic procedures? If you answered “yes,” then dental bonding in Plymouth, NH, from Dr. Jeffrey Williams may be the procedure you’re looking for! As a leading general and cosmetic dentist near you, Dr. Williams provides a broad suite of dental care that can improve the appearance and quality of your smile, including dental bonding.

The Benefits of Dental Bonding

Many procedures can improve the appearance of your smile. Some options include dental crowns, dental veneers, dental bonding, dental aligners, and teeth whitening. Of these, dental bonding can help:

  • Correct decay and small cavities in teeth
  • Repair chips and fractures in teeth
  • Make changes to the length of teeth
  • Lighten teeth that are resistant to professional whitening
  • Correct spacing issued between teeth
  • Adjust imperfections in the shape and size of teeth
  • Cover the exposed root of a tooth

Other cosmetic procedures can accomplish the same results mentioned above, but dental bonding is often more affordable and quicker. For example, a dental crown can cover a tooth that is chipped or cracked, but that procedure usually requires multiple dental appointments. By contrast, dental bonding can be done in one appointment. Two other benefits of dental bonding are that you don’t need preparation for the procedure, and anesthesia is not required.

Every patient’s requirement for cosmetic dentistry will be different and affect the timeline in treatment but consider dental bonding when designing a smile makeover. When you visit Dental Arts of Plymouth for your smile consultation, Dr. Williams and his team discuss every procedure available to meet your goals. Your customized treatment plan will include methods you’ve chosen based on their effectiveness and cost.

What to Expect During the Procedure?

Dental bonding can be performed without anesthesia since it is considered one of the least invasive cosmetic dental procedures. Our dentist will apply a custom-colored composite resin to teeth that have been gently abraded in preparation to receive the resin material. While the material is pliable, Dr. Williams will sculpt it and form it into an aesthetically pleasing appearance before using a light source to harden the resin. You should avoid eating any foods or drinking liquids that could stain or damage the bonded tooth for about 48 hours. Examples include red wine, coffee and tea, and tobacco products. Patients tell us that this brief abstinence is worth the benefits of dental bonding.

Looking for Other Cosmetic Dental Treatments?

Even though dental bonding is the desired procedure for patients seeking a quick improvement in the appearance of their smile, we provide other smile makeover procedures such as dental crowns, teeth whitening, and dental veneers. If you’d like to invest more time into your smile than the quick procedure needed for dental bonding, Six-Month Smiles braces are considered an ideal investment in time. Your teeth will be more evenly aligned for a healthy and symmetrical smile.

Our practice provides patient-centered care, which means that we will discuss every treatment option so you can decide what’s best for your short-term and long-term goals and what’s best for your budget. We use the latest technology to provide safe, high-quality treatment in general and cosmetic dentistry near you.
